There are some songs so near and dear to our hearts that they sink into our consciousness and recall our childhood with their melodies. They're old ballads- we may know the tune but not the history. These are the songs your grandpa hummed as a boy while he climbed trees by the creek. These are the songs you learned on the playground. These were America's songs then and they are America's songs now.
The Southern Songbook Collection tells the stories the characters and narratives of American folk songs through vintage + reclaimed fabric. Some tunes you may know, some are yet to be rediscovered- but all are woven tightly into America's history.
